What is Sukrin Gold?
Sukrin Gold is an alternative to brown sugar. You can use it as an ingredient in baking, but you can also use it in coffee or as a sprinkle.
The main ingredient of Sukrin Gold is erythritol , a substance that is slightly less sweet than sugar (about 60% to 80% of the sweetness) and which occurs naturally in some fruits and mushrooms ( source ). Erythritol contains no calories. To ensure that you can dose Sukrin Gold as sugar, two other sweeteners, stevia and tagatose, have been added.
Who is Sukrin Gold suitable for?
Sukrin Gold contains a small amount of gluten and is therefore not suitable for people who are allergic to it. For the rest, anyone can take the product, including diabetics.

How effective is Sukrin Gold?
As mentioned, erythritol is the main ingredient in Sukrin Gold. This substance contains no calories. However, side effects can occur. The substance has a laxative effect and can cause flatulence ( source ). Stevia is a well-known sweetener that was only recently discovered. This substance appears to be safe, but little is known about its long-term health effect ( source ).
We did a few tests with Sukrin Gold. First we sprinkled poffertjes with Sukrin Gold and brown sugar. Our subjects could not see or taste the difference between the two.
Of course we also baked a few times with Sukrin Gold. So we made a delicious cake. So the product does what it promises. It is good to know that Sukrin Gold does not caramelize. So you can’t sprinkle it over your crème Brule.
How much does Sukrin Gold cost?
This package contains 500 grams. If you order for less than 14$.
It is very convenient that Sukrin Gold doses exactly like real brown sugar. This way you can just use the same recipes as before.
Sukrin gold is more than twenty times more expensive than real sugar. Even though it’s a good alternative to brown sugar, most people will only use it in baking. A little sweetness in the coffee is also sufficient.
Sukrin Gold is a worthy substitute for brown sugar. You can’t see or taste the difference between the products. Sukrin Gold doses like sugar and is perfect to use in all kinds of baking recipes that contain brown sugar. The only thing Sukrin Gold doesn’t do is caramelize.
Sukrin Gold is a bit on the expensive side. In products where you add sugar purely for taste (such as in your coffee), you might as well use a cheaper product, such as a sweetener. Otherwise we recommend this product.
